Skin-On - a creepy “leather” gadget case that responds to stroking, tickling and tweaking

Once Marc Tessier, a specialist from the Paris University of Technology, came up with a genius

idea. Her genius is evidenced by the circumstances in which this idea came to Mark's mind: he wanted to pinch his smartphone. Why - it is not clear, but the result of this fantasy was the “smart” case for Skin-On gadgets.

What it is

At first glance, this is a terrible thing. From the second - too. The fact is that the cover is made of artificial leather, which looks creepy and really resembles the sensations of human skin.

A cover is made of two layers of silicone, between which elastic wires are located. The top layer of silicone imitates the epidermis, and the bottom layer is coarser and gives it a “something” shape.

What is it for?

In addition to the external resemblance, such a cover, likeskin, able to respond to touch and transfer them to the gadget. It recognizes spanking, stroking, tickling, tweaking, etc. In this way, the user can convey his emotions: pressing hard - anger, stroking - comforting, tapping - attracting attention. The result is an emotional closeness between the person and the device (it seems that Mark really missed her).

Such a cover can be worn on a smartphone, used instead of a touchpad on a laptop or a strap for a smart watch. In addition, with the help of Skin-On you can interact with robots.
